  • Tate Olson continues off the good start to his year, picking up 4 assists in 2 games as well as having a +1 and 2 penalty minutes.
  • Dmitry Zhukenov performed similarly, notching 4 assists in 2 games as well as 3 shots on goal.
  • Carl Neill is having a great start to his season, with 2 more goals in the past 3 games, along with 1 assist, 6 penalty minutes, a +2 rating and 8 more shots on goal.  His first goal was scored on the powerplay and can be seen here (h/t Jeremy Davis)
  • Kyle Pettit’s scoring has cooled off this week, but he still took 3 shots and had a +1 rading in 2 games. Erie is currently the top ranked CHL team.
  • Guillaume Brisebois continues his season without a point. He is currently 8 games into the season (4 more this week), and this week, he was a -2 and had 8 shots on goal. He was also named to the QMJHL roster for the CHL Canada/Russia series (formerly known as the Subway Series).
  • While not technically a Canuck prospect, camp invite and draft interests Rodrigo Abols has 2 goals and 4 assists through 6 games to start the year while Jackson Whistle currently posts a .909 save percentage, which is just above League Average.

  • Никита Трямкин skated in two KHL games this week scoring a single assist. He finished with a -1, took 2 shots on goal, and played just over 17 minutes of ice time per game.
  • Lucas Jasek continues to have a sputtering start to his year. He played 2 games in the senior Czech league this week where he averaged 5:01 a game and was a -1. He did not play in Wednesday’s game as he was demoted to the Tier 2 senior league where he has 1 goal in 1 game. This was the second time this season he was demoted; previously he went back to the Czech Junior league, where he has 2 points in 2 games.

  • This past week the University of North Dakota won 5-2 over Lake Superior State, and tied 1-1 with Maine. Brock Boeser skated in both games but had points in neither. He does, however, lead UND with 11 shots on goal.
  • Northeastern played Colgate this week, winning 2-1. Adam Gaudette had no points, but took 5 shots on goal. I am in Boston this week and will try and go to the Northeastern game to do some scouting of Gaudette.
  • Penn State beat Canisius 6-1. Mike Williamson played his first game of the year, earning 2 PIMs and 3 shots on goal.
  • Yale has not yet played a game, their first will be on October 30th.

  • Thatcher Demko played in 2 Boston College games this past week stopping 49 of 52 shots. His .942 save percentage to start the year has him ranked as 13th in the NCAA which I see continuing to rise all season. He can also apparently play football.
